1287QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowInformation tool shows absolute units in print previewAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

With that new feature the information tool shows the absolute paper units in the print preview mode instead of drawing units.
So you can determine the exact size of an entity in the printout without manual calculating with the drawing units and the scale factor.

1 Task Description

Would be nice, if in print preview QCAD rulers would switch to paper dimensions. Chat here http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=3793

After all, print preview is not just the drawing on white, isn’t it? Everything else should stay in drawing units. Just the rulers, maybe a preference?

0%
1 Task Description

Often I find myself clicking on an existing line to determine the angle from the property editor, then copying and pasting this info into the angle field, it would be so very useful to have an additional option in the ‘Line from Angle’ tool to be able to pick an existing entity which would automatically register and fill in the angle for me,then all I would need to do would enter the length required.

1446QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew Polygon toolAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi,

if I need to design a bolt circle (circle on circle) and the single bolt diameter and the quantity of circles are given then I can use the QCAD Polygon Tool “Polygon 2 Points of Side” ... but for the Length of the side I have to do a workaround (Line with this length) to determine the desired length.

It would be very convenient to have an additional tool for a Polygon which has the possibility to ask me for the center, corners and the length of the sides.

Not sure how difficult this would be to implement but just wondered if it is possible to have an option in QCAD to change the opacity of a colour ?

1471QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFile > Open file locationAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

When working with several files is normal also to work in several folders, this can be confusing, expecially in the case where there are different folders with equal file names.
I propose the creation of a “Open file location”. This, probably under the main menu, “File”, when clicked would open the standard
“file explorer” with the folder that contains the current file already selected.
It would be quite similar to the windows 8/10 “Open file location”.

0%
1 Task Description

It would be extreamly useful to have an option to either use - or not use leader lines in the standard horizontal/vertical dimension line tools, some of the drawings I’m working on need the ‘standard’ looking dimensions with leader lines and some don’t. its a real pain to have to select - explode and delete all the leaders I don’t need.

Hoping for an option

1502QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowInfo tool / Setting for Font and Size ... Assigned
0%

It would be nice if the Info Tool / Add Measurement to drawing option would use the same settings like the “Dimension settings” for Font and Text height. It’s a kind of similar function in a drawing and should have the same style. Maybe with an on/off switch?

1555QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowExport list of points.Assigned

1 Task Description

Hello
It would be great when you can add a function to export a selected object as a list of points.
Is it possible to add?

Autodes DWG TrueView 2017 has this function and it is very useful.
Here you can see a screenshot of this function.

1567QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd support for separate windowAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi, for multi-screen hosts it would be very useful to have additional windows while running the single QCad instance. Other applications like Palemoon, Evolution, Gimp are providing that already.
That would help a lot when working on multiple files and copying blocks between.

1570QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowmake the stretch tool more flexible in selecting nodesAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Stretching multiple points of an entity is not possible to my knowledge. I
can use the stretch tool but this gives me a rectangular selection box and
this limits my posibilities. For example when entities are over eachother.
I hope that in the future this will become more like blender. With a freedraw
selection tool and/or shift clicking multiple nodes.

1576QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowadd option to switch off dialog for modify: rotate tool...Assigned

1 Task Description

To improve the flow of drawing I’d like to switch off the dialog for the rotate tool. Most of the times i use the interactive input and delete the original. So I don’t need to click a popup to acknowledge that.
I allready use the same option for the move/copy tool.

1577QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPostfix for DIM / Remember last DIM Label ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi,

unfortunately I need to use from time to time different Units in a drawing. It works nice with the Scale possibility but to keep my drawing readable I need to label then the DIM accordingly. Sadly I don’t have a Postfix option so I work with a workaround what means I use <>”, or <>’ and <>mm in the Prefix field. If I then terminate the DIM tool and start it again I will loose my settings except the Scale Factor.

May I ask for an additional Postfix option or/and a remember functionality of those fields?

1663QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFeature Request: Export Layers as New DrawingAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi!

in many tasks in qcad I ended up exporting one or several layers into individual files for some cnc jobs or further processing. So the steps I usually do are:

  • select all elements on the layer
  • paste into new drawing
  • sometimes rename layer names or attributes
  • adjust dimension settings
  • save and give name for drawing

Sometimes I have up to 100 layers I need to export like this, so an automatic export for all would be time saving too. But very often a “single click” export method would also help a lot. (e.g. inside the layer list an entry in the right click menue like “save as new file”). Also a multiple selection would be handy if more that one layer should end up in the new file. (e.g. select the three layers that need to be in the new document, then right click and save as new file). Maybe this is too much of changes needed inside the layer list - so something like a separate layer export dialogue would make sense.

When exporting many layers some variables for automatic naming of layers and filename would make sense e.g. user can specify basename_%L.dxf to get the basename_layername.dxf or just an increasing number.

For layers and attributes it is often needed to give a layer a certain name or color for different cnc processes (e.g. engraving and cutting for lasers) or to put everything on layer “0” because of some old CAM software that only supports content on layer 0.

probably many more details would make sense that I didn’t think of yet...

kind regards
Martin

1705QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowConnect certain actions and layersAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

When dimensioning my drawings I always want the dimensions to be on the dimensions layer.
When adding text I want the text to be on the text layer.
When drawing an infinite line it is always a construction line, therefore I want it to be on the construction line layer.
When drawing a line segment it almost always is on my outline layer.

So I propose a new option to bind certain actions to certain layers.
Whenever those actions are selected the layer should automatically be switched.

I can imagine this being implemented in the General→Tool Settings menu, where the short cuts are defined.

1 Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Currently the only option to insert a viewport is using the central insertion point, for better placement it would be useful to have an option to insert viewports at any of the four corners in addition to the centre.

Hope that makes sense.

Many thanks

Hi Andrew,

It would be good to have an option to be able to place the text to the left or right,maybe just a simple check box? please see attached screenshot to explain. In this instance (and I have to do this a lot ;)) I had to explode the dimension entity and rearrange the text manually :(

Many thanks

Same txt as on the forum.
had a copy because i had to log in 3 times to remark my own post.

Blocks are no solution either.

see pdf
[attachment=0]Block test_1.pdf[/attachment]

Antartica is put in a block as segments.
Added a rounded corner as segments and as poly.
scaled X x0.5 Y x1 origin the center of the magenta circl.

The scaled version is all over the place.
Set them to color red, no use they stay black.

The reference of the block is 2000mm to the left because I tried it out far right of my design.
The cyan circle is about 400mm in diameter.

1764QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowZoom in with middle clickAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

I would suggest adding a feature Inkscape has, which is that a single middle click zooms in. This is not at the detriment of panning, since the mouse/pen (I use a Wacom tablet) doesn’t move. Right now middle click doesn’t do anything so I don’t think it should be a problem.

Another awesome and related Inkscape zooming feature is that Shift+middle click shifts to window zooming. But with the added bonus that you don’t lose the tool you’re in. Try it out on Inkscape if I’m not clear!

Cheers,
JFL

0%
Task Description

I think it would be nice to have more flexibility for Prefix etc. option (not only the drop down with a given choice) and a remember function for all those fields like postfix and tolerance.

Why Remember Function:
If I use a postfix like <>” in the postfix field I’m only able to use it for this particular dimension type at this time. If I change the type (from Horizontal to vertical or what ever) I have always to repeat my postfix. The same with tolerances.

Hi,

in QCAD3 RC2 points were printed as crosses, in QCAD3 RC4 they are printed as (very little) points. I think this isn’t a bug but a feature. ;-)

528QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFont Editing Assigned
0%
Task Description

Dear Sir,
I have noticed that in QCAD 3 rc4 it is not possible to open and edit font files.
This feature exists in version 2.2 and is indispensable to people using not common languages.
For example the unicode font does not have all greek characters, so I have added a few of the missing ones by editing the unicode.cxf font with version 2.2.
I kindly ask the designers to consider enabling this capability again.
Thank you!

Momentan kann ich ein Rechteck für Selektion bestimmen - muss aber dann nach einer Kopie alles manuell trimmen, löschen etc. um nur den gewünschten Rechteckinhalt zu bekommen ...
